Winner of the Grand Jury Documentary prize at the Sundance Film Festival, Syrian filmmaker Fayyad and Danish co-director Johannessen’s breathtaking work – a searing example of boots-on-the-ground reportage – follows the efforts of the internationally recognized White Helmets, an organization comprised of ordinary citizens who are the first to rush towards explosions in the hope of saving lives. Incorporating moments of both heart-pounding suspense and improbable beauty, the documentary draws us into the lives of three of its founders – Khalid, Subhi and Mahmoud – as they grapple with the chaos around them and struggle with an ever-present dilemma: do they flee with their families or stay and fight for their country. A gripping portrait of extraordinary bravery, Last Men in Aleppo provides a stirring new perspective on a conflict reshaping our world.

“[Demands] to be reckoned with. There is no denying the cumulative power of the material, in large part due the protagonists’ endless reservoirs of humanity, dignity and selflessness in the face of one of the world’s worst biggest current and most incomprehensible tragedies. Last Men in Aleppo speaks very loudly from the heart.”– Boyd van Hoeij, The Hollywood Reporter

“Viscerally immediate, exquisitely realized… The cinema is where Last Men in Aleppo firmly belongs. Together with co-director and editor Steen Johannessen, Fayyad brings a rigorous sense of craft and shock-and-awe scale to the film’s impressions of destruction, without impeding its anxious, on-the-hoof spontaneity.”

Royal Shakespeare Company presents Julius Caesar

One Day ONLY!
Saturday, June 10th at 2:30PM

Angus Jackson directs Shakespeare’s epic political tragedy, as the race to claim the empire spirals out of control.  Caesar returns from war, all-conquering, but mutiny is rumbling through the corridors of power.

The Rome season in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre opens with the politics of spin and betrayal turning to violence. Following his sell-out productions of Tom Morton-Smith’s Oppenheimer (2014) and James Fenton’s adaptation of Don Quixote (2016), Season Director Angus Jackson steers the thrilling action.

“Julius Caesar is helmed by Angus Jackson – and he’s brought something with him that delivers a spark of new fire in the air”

“Robert Innes Hopkins’s magisterial set evokes imperialism at its grandest and functions brilliantly as both the public face of Rome and the crumbling ruins outside its walls. But it is enhanced by the sensitive and articulate lighting of Tim Mitchell, the sound design of Carolyn Dowling and the subtle, evocative music of Mira Calix.” -WhatsOnStage

A STEM Translational Communication Center public event

He is also a faculty member on the UCSD/SDSU Joint Doctoral Program in Public Health.

Description

A family. A diagnosis. A phone call. One family’s journey through cancer…

A unique and powerful educational resource for patients, family members, medical professionals, and all persons whose lives have somehow been touched by cancer.

Adapted from the award-winning book, “A Natural History of Family Cancer,” the conversations portrayed in “When Cancer Calls…” are drawn from the only known recordings in the history of the social and medical sciences between an actual cancer patient and her family members. From diagnosis through death of a loved one (mother/wife/sister), these interactions – 61 phone calls over 13 months – are at once extraordinary, yet strikingly familiar, to all who have encountered them.
